LIPOSUCTION & BODY CONTOURING

Safety. Natural Results. Rapid Recovery.

If you are searching for an experienced facial plastic surgeon with this as a priority, we are a great match!

What are the most popular procedures?

-Liposuction: Liposuction is a versatile procedure designed to sculpt the body by reducing unwanted areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It can be applied to nearly all areas of the body where there is excessive or disproportional fat. We perform rapid recovery liposuction without general anesthesia and can accommodate individuals with high BMIs (up to 41).

-Abdominoplasty: Abdominoplasty, or ‘tummy tuck,’ flattens and enhances the appearance of the abdomen by removing excess skin, fat, and most stretch marks from the lower abdomen. This includes excising surplus tissue and tightening the abdominal muscles. The procedure is popular after pregnancy or significant weight loss, effectively addressing a flabby or bulging abdomen. We also offer a tummy tuck alternative without general anesthesia.

Our 3 Pillars

1. Safety: We operate in accredited facilities equipped with state-of-the-art technologies. Our anesthetists specialize in plastic surgery procedures and avoid using general anesthesia whenever feasible.

2. Natural Results: Achieved through the use of cutting-edge techniques and the artistic expertise of the surgeon, we minimize the risk of skin irregularities and fibrosis.

3. Rapid Recovery: Our approach combines sophisticated protocols with pre/intra/post-operative medications, nutritional supplementation, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and specialized anesthesia techniques, significantly reducing recovery times.

What set us apart:

We Have the Know-How: Body contouring in the US has lacked innovation for two decades. The most recent advancements in this field have originated from South American plastic surgeons, surpassing their North American counterparts in outcomes. Innovations include High-Definition Liposuction, fat transfer to multiple muscular groups, and rib remodeling. Although Dr. Rivera trained in plastic surgery in the US and Europe, he is Colombian and regularly attends South American meetings to stay updated on the latest techniques.

Liposuction for patients with High BMIs (High Body Mass Index) or Obesity

The typical cutoff for liposuction among most surgeons is a BMI of 32, primarily due to increased risks such as anesthesia complications. However, we’ve found that performing these procedures without general anesthesia in patients with higher BMIs is safe, provided they are otherwise healthy and free from significant medical issues. Individuals with BMIs up to 40-42 could be considered as candidates for surgery
